Height, bar molding and tap systems are important considerations when designing a home bar. The standard height of a bar is 42 inches. Bar stools usually measure 30 inches high, leaving enough knee room. The bar overhang should be at least 8 inches to provide enough room for movement.
Bar moldings are made to fit over the bar top to avoid spills and to serve as an arm rest. Curved bar molding is more expensive and is available only from online suppliers. A beer tap system requires regular flushing, and pipes connecting it should be insulated to keep the beer cold. Small kegs work best in a home bar.
